NATIONAL DAY FOR TRUTH AND RECONCILIATION

Join us in supporting Truth and Reconciliation.

Stanfield's has partnered with Muin Clothing, a certified Indigenous company and a member of the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business (CCAB), to produce an Indigenous, Made-in-Canada Orange t-shirt collection.

The collection includes multiple prints all designed by Derek Lewis, owner of Muin Clothing Co., and a treaty-holding Mi’kmaw who is an enrolled member of the Millbrook (We’kopekwit) First Nation located near Truro, Nova Scotia.

Muin Clothing Co. is a heritage brand that tells the full story of Canada, those that were on the land first and those that came after. Founder Derek Lewis believes that it is possible for people of goodwill to have honest and difficult conversations that can start the healing process. Visit their website here.

THE WHY

In honouring the 94 Calls to Action issued by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, Stanfield's is proud to have built a collaborative partnership with Muin Clothing Co. to produce an orange t-shirt that is both Indigenous and made in Canada.

One dollar from every purchase will go to the Na-mi-quai-ni-mak Fund (“I Remember Them” Fund) administered by the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NCTR).

Forming meaningful professional relationships with Indigenous peoples, and amplifying their voices is the duty of Canadian businesses and we at Stanfield's thank Derek Lewis of Muin Clothing Co. for leading this collaboration. 

THE T-SHIRTS AND THEIR STORIES

Each design was thoughtfully crafted by Derek Lewis. Learn their meaning and significance in his words.

THE OWL

The Owl is considered a bird of wisdom, intuition, and prophecy in the Indigenous community. Owls are often seen as messengers. Some healers call upon the Owl for insight into the truth of ill-intent. After Cooking the Owl, the Mi’kmaw historically used the oil as medicine.

I find what is needed in Truth and Reconciliation today is a little wisdom and healing, so that is why I chose this animal for my 2022 offering for the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.

PORCUPINE QUILLS

The idea for using Porcupine Quills to create a Quillwork design is rooted deep in the traditional art of the Mi’kmaw peoples. Porcupine quills were used on clothing, accessories and birch bark containers. The Mi’kmaw were often referred to as “the porcupine people”, so much so that the quillwork has always been highly desired by all.

I am humbled that my Ancestors inspired me in this design.

EAGLE FEATHERS

The Eagle is the only creature that is said to have touched the face of the Creator. Even though it is a bird, it grounds the Mi’kmaw people to who they are and their relationship to the Creator.

Eagle feathers are so sacred that even in a colonial court of law, a Mi’kmaw can take an eagle feather and take the“Sacred Eagle Feather Affirmation”; this is akin to swearing on the bible. This is why I chose two eagle feathers for this design – one representing truth, and the other for reconciliation
